ABC glitch sends Beverley O’Connor out on live TV

  • The host of ABC’s The World was on set while a packaged interview was showing
  • Suddenly a glitch saw her sent out on live TV but she noticed after a few seconds
  • Beverley O’Connor soon regained her composure and was soon taken off camera
  • The incident has some wondering if she will be taken off-air like Natasha Exelby

Another ABC host has been caught by surprise on live TV, finding herself suddenly on-air during a packaged interview.

Beverley O’Connor, host of ABC’s The World, can be seen chatting and leaning forward when she suddenly becomes aware she is on-air.

The Melbourne journalist is clearly shocked, but quickly regains her composure and assumes a professional pose before the glitch is fixed.
